Federal court rejects ex-AG's lawsuit against Kansas court
July 2, 2017
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A federal appeals court is refusing to revive a former Kansas attorney general's lawsuit against the state Supreme Court over its indefinite suspension of his state law license.
A three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled Monday against ex-Attorney General Phill Kline.
The anti-abortion Republican was disciplined over allegations of misconduct arising from investigations of abortion providers as attorney general from 2003 through 2006 and Johnson County district attorney in 2007 and 2008.
Kline has strongly denied wrongdoing.
